Benjamin Von Wong

Conceptual Photography

Benjamin Von Wong is the embodiment of the new breed of creative.
A self-taught photographer who prefers to call himself a “creator,” Benjamin is open to all forms of expression — often working in video or any other medium required to do the job.

He crowd-sources everything from crew to gear, bringing together professionals, friends, and fans alike to help him realize his ideas.
Social media and community play a primary role in both his production process and creative expression, and he recently crowd-funded a trip across Europe, making it up as he went along.

Benjamin started his professional life as a mining engineer, lured by the promise of travel and adventure.
He did travel, but working in mines in some of the most desolate places on earth wasn’t exactly what he had in mind.
It was on a work trip to the middle of Nevada that Benjamin got his first camera and started taking pictures.

He learned everything he knows from the Internet, watching tutorials, downloading trial versions of products, playing with tools, and essentially willing himself into a professional photographer. Because of that, giving back to the community and sharing what he learns with others is an important part of his process.

Benjamin’s open, enthusiastic nature and his generous spirit are a big part of his success.
When you spend time with him, it’s hard not to be caught up by his energy, and he welcomes people to come, observe, and even participate on his shoots.

I’ve never seen a creative professional make something from nothing as quickly and effortlessly as he does. On our recent shoot, he contacted a designer and a model, reached out to a local taxidermist to secure some unique props, found some dramatic Toronto locations, and recruited a handful of aspiring professionals on social media to help out, getting the shoot together in just a couple of days.
